Google Code - Google goes the way of Yahoo Developers Network

A nice little post hiding on the Searchenginewatch blog today - Google has launched a new subdomain: code.google.com. Under the heading "Welcome to Google Code, Google's place for Open Source software", Google now creates a developer place, like the recently announced Yahoo! Developer Network. From FAQ:

What is code.google.com?
Code.google.com is our site for external developers interested in Google-related development. It’s where we’ll publish free source code and lists of our API services.

Who are the people behind code.google.com?
A lot of people worked together to both prepare source code for release and prepare code.google.com for launch and ongoing maintenance. We really care about free and open source software (F/OSS) at Google, and this site is one aspect of that affection.

Sounds nice - bring it on !

heh.

their featured project at the moment is by none other than Mark Pilgrim. i wonder if they're unofficially saying they don't care about his Butler extension? ;)

Yep

And if i were about to make a public statement about Autolinks future, i'd be doing it in about 24/48hrs from now when that news has finally got round and all the geeks are good and excited about Google entering the Open Source discussion finally...

uhm

Gmail out of beta - adsensers can now talk about all the money they make - a weird OSX hommage thingy - and then this... all in a very short timeframe. Of course it is all good, but... well, there's just something... i can't really put my finger on it.

Anyway, my girlfriends car won't work for much longer, so she's trying to find a new one - one bad thing about this is that new cars are too expensive in this country, another is you get to meet mechanics...

Me: The engine makes this odd sound..
Mechanic: Look, you'll get this nice ad sponsored road map for free...
Me: Okay, but what about the engine, then?
Mechanic: Now, how's about a car stereo? We'll throw that in as well..
Me: Yeah that's nice, but the engine really doesn't sound right.
Mechanic: Didya notice the tires? Brand new they are...
Me: Hey, really.. dontcha think the engine needs to be fixed?
Mechanic: Battery's brand new... five door model, much better than two doors...
Me: You really don't want to talk about that engine, huh?

okay, that wasn't funny

..thought so myself... need to get out more, it seems :-)

that was very funny

..everyone must have been asleep
